    Below there are two examples of Data Point Distribution (DPD) and their relationship to the Designated Artist Target Zone (DATZ). Both examples appear in a similar graphic format to that which appears in the various Catalogue Raisonnés.
    The image designated as rcr-121 shows the results for a typical misattribution. Note that none of the IDP are located within the DATZ for Rembrandt van Rijn. Only two are even visible at the edge of the graphic. Because Veritus uses an algorithm to visually compress areas outside the DATZ, the farther the distance from the DATZ, the greater the compression of visible space. However, fifteen of the IDP form the DPD as a tight cluster within the DATZ of an artist by the name of Gerrit Willemz Horst Horst was a painter in Rembrandt’s studio for several years. The graphic representing the DPD shown on the DATZ for the artist Horst is shown on the next page.
    The painting represented by graphic rcr-121 has been accepted as a Rembrandt masterpiece since the middle of the eighteenth century. The painting is signed with Rembrandt’s name and is dated. Its image appears in virtually every tome written on Rembrandt van Rijn. Various scholars and experts have written wonderful analyses explaining why the painting is an unusual masterpiece for Rembrandt. However, the real reason that the painting is unusual for Rembrandt is that it was painted by Gerrit Horst, not by Rembrandt.




    The image designated as vdc-701 shows the results typical of a Misattribution. Note that none of the IDP are located within the DATZ for Sir Anthony van Dyck or are even visible on the compressed graphic. However, sixteen IDP form a tight DPD cluster within the DATZ of an unknown artist. Two of the IDP are in the same location and thus appear as only one point.
    The graphic representing the DPD shown on the DATZ for this unknown artist is shown on the next page. Veritus has a high level of confidence that the name of this artist will be identified as more of his or her paintings are located. To date, Veritus has located seven of his or her paintings hidden within the works of Sir Anthony van Dyck. Veritus has found several other paintings by the same artist which were masquerading as paintings by other Northern European artists.
